Karori Arts & Crafts (KACC) welcomes new members. We foster artistic expression across a diverse range of arts and crafts that feature in this website. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in arts and crafts or any of our special interest groups. You do not have to be a Karori resident to join KACC, we have members from all over Wellington and the greaterWellington region.

If you enjoy working in a fun, social environment that encourages creativity in:
  • art: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media, paper crafts, collage, calligraphy and bookmaking
  • craft: quilting/patchwork, embroidery, knitting, crochet, book binding/making, or textile art  - think about joining us.
The majority of our activities are untutored groups who already have the skills required in their chosen art or craft. The remainder of the weekly activities focus on art classes that cover beginners through to intermediate level artists. These classes run in 8 week blocks see our class and activities page for more information. Workshops are open to members and non-members with approximately 3-4 each term on offer.

We have a range of Children's Art classes on Mon, Tues and Thurs after-school these focus on drawing, painting, printmaking and 3D sculpture with a different focus each term.  More details feature on our class and activities page.  There is currently a small waiting list for places as we restrict numbers to ensure each child gets appropriate feedback.
